Yes there is a lot going on in this shot. I wish I could go back in time and recompose this shot.

FS999 I love the unique bokeh in your flowers pictures. That Soligor lens in awesome!
This is an old pic that I recently converted to black and white. What do you guys think?

ATM I have a D7000 and the af in low light is much snappier. Comparing a cheap 18-105 to the DA* 16-50. But its all about the right tool for the right job! The K5 pretty much poops on the D7000 in terms of ruggedness and useability. The af aggravated me a few days ago and so I bought a D7000 knowing the upgrade path to FF, affordable f/1.8 lenses and a superior flash system. I bet Pentax now comes out with a vastly improved af system and a FF. I just can't wait anymore. :( I still wear the Pentaxforums t-shirt.

Got some new shots. Had some issues focusing in low light. I hope we get better low light af and predictive af as well.

We need hands on tests to see if af is improved enough. This is the biggest issue I have. Lowlight af issues. Plus I got the DA*50-135 and the af is very slow for what I planned on using it for. They need to improve these things for wedding/event photographers.

"Watch Tower" 180 30 sec exposures stacked for trails and used an off cameral flash to paint light.

Nothing special just a nice reflection composed with the sunset.

iso 1100 for the boat pic (very low light) the NR made it silky smooth and looked pretty good. Not sure which star that was but it was bright!

Fs999 great detail in that moon shot. Here is a shot from last night when the overcast sky ruined my moon rise shot so I turned around and shot the beach front.

Ooh the D800E looks sweet. I hate to pay $2 grand on the 14-24mm wide zoom though. A damn expensive investment. Maybe I can sell a body part? IDK if I could sell my complete Pentax setup just to purchase the body alone. I really like my K5 but I see various benefits in the Nikon camp and especially the D800E. I really wish Pentax had a FF or much cheaper 645D. Landscape is my thing. Decisions...

I would love to test actual lenses in the store before buying. Very important. However these prices should be 20% cheaper and have a 3 year warranty.

Android based to sync with gps, cell phone and 0-gps1. Imagine using Google Sky Map in live view on a swivel screen. Remote triggering with live view from Android phone. It could be so feature rich! So many possibilities! Why hasn't anyone jumped on this?

I think Pentax should rerelease all limiteds with wr protection. Take advantage of their advantage. Then revamp the autofocus to dc motors. Just make it more competitive! TG I already own the dA 16-50 and 50-135 zooms. I love em but hate the ca. Still my go to lens in any enviroment!

Shot with the DA* 16-50 or Sigma 10-20. It was very windy to take 30 second exposures in Sandy Hook. I was surprised that they came out alright.

I never could get catch in focus to work. I press the shutter and it auto focuses and fires. I would expect it to not autofocus and fire when a subject breaks the focus plane. Im using manual, catch in focus on, af on remote off, af-s and MF. Im using the wired remote and its not working.
